WELL I HAD MY C-SECTION ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO AND I HAVE A LUMP ON THE LEFT SIDE OF MY CUT AND A SMALLER LUMP ON THE RIGHT..AT FIRST MY DOCTOR SAID THE MY UTERUS WAS SWOLLEN, THEN HE SAID THAT IT WAS FLUID AND THAT HE "THINKS" IT WILL GO DOWN...BUT ITS NOT GOING DOWN AND I JUST WANTED TO KNOW IF SOMEONE MIGHT HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT IT COULD BE? MAYBE BY BODY'S REACTION TO THE STITCHES INSIDE? I DOUBT THE STAPLES HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT , BECOUSE THE OUTSIDE IS HEALING FINE.

It sounds like it could be scar tissue. I had a lump under the skin after my second c-section. After my third I guess they cut it out, because it was gone!

Well i had a lump on my right side after my c-section and i thought it was an incisional hernia,but lucky for me it was not.My dr said it was just a st_tch in my uterus that did not disove but within the next wk it was gone.

I also have that and Dr. told me it is just scar tissue healing

My doctor told me that the hard lumps I feel under my cut will take 3-4 months to go away. I had a c-section almost 2 weeks ago, and saw my doctor after a week.

is it red and tender at all? could be infected?

I had a c-section 3 and half years ago and i have the lump too the dr said it is nothing to worry about but it still p__ses me off cause it hurts so when someone figures it out please let us all know what to do

I have this too I went in 5 days after w/ the spot and pain they said it was from pulled tendons or ligaments (i can't remember which) b/c i had a difficult c-section. My ds was pushed 1/2 way out then got stuck b/c he was breech so i was pulled on A LOT. N e ways its 8 1/2 months later and I see a surgeon this wednesday to schedule surgery to remove an endometriomia. It is a "rare" complication from a c-section. I have discomfort all month long but for about 1/2 the month around the time of my cycle I have much more intense pain. I say "rare" this way b/c from what little bit of literature you will find on it it says that it is often misdiagonised as something else. Hope this helps some ppl out!

I have a red tender lump right above my scar and it kept swelling and got more tender... turns out to be infected. I am 6 wks post c/s. I have to take antibiotics for 10 days.

Sounds like an infection to me... does it hurt to touch it?


Kre87 - December 29th, 2007 9:34 PM

i had lumps tender to the touch all over the scar line and the ob said they were normal unless the started to grow mine were gone after 3 months i was really worried about them too! bc noone said you would get lumps.
